Manhattan, New York (PressExposure) January 01, 2010 -- Gone are the days when surgery spelled terror in the minds of people. Fear of pain, discomfort and inhibitions could make a person think twice before going ahead with invasive forms of liposuction. Patients can soon rely on BodyTiteâ¢, a minimally invasive liposuction procedure which would redefine the concept of surgery. BodyTiteâ¢ is a handheld radiofrequency device which is set to eliminate fat and ensure a slim and trim figure for both men and women. The Israel based company INVASIX has introduced this equipment to the field of plastic surgery. The device is capable of melting excess fat, coagulating the blood vessels and tightening the skin. The many benefits of BodyTiteâ¢ make it unmatched among all other procedures and devices employed today.
BodyTiteâ¢ achieves effective fat extraction and body sculpting. Local anesthesia is administered prior to surgery and the procedure begins when a probe makes its way through the incisions (3 mm) to deliver the energy required to liquefy the fat. Subsequently, the fat is aspirated. Unlike invasive forms of liposuction where blood loss is common, the latest device is capable of coagulating the blood vessels, thereby restricting blood loss considerably. There is no risk of burn as the closed loop safety system prevents excessive heating of the fat and dermis.
If the need arises, the surgeon can adjust the level of temperature. For proper skin tightening, which is required for attaining a good body contour, the device directly heats the subdermal and subcutaneous layers. The procedure should generally take about 45 minutes.
The patients recover quickly and day-to-day activities can be resumed without hindrance. BodyTiteâ¢, being a minimally invasive liposuction procedure with all its unique advantages, is sure to become the most sought after body contouring technique. This new form of liposuction could be the ultimate breakthrough compared to all other fat reduction procedures.
